CELEBRATING 18 YEARS OF HISTORY

Welcome! You’ve found Australia’s premier competitive LGBTIQ-inclusive basketball club Spectres Australia! Originally formed in 2001 to represent Sydney in the 2002 Gay Games, the club has now grown into a multi-team, multi-city, mega collection of awesomness that is now a well-known part of the Australian and International LGBTIQ sporting and basketball community.

Our mission is to provide an inclusive and friendly environment to play basketball, train and socialise. Although winning is important, showing respect, playing with fairness, making friendships, and building our community are the core values deeply engrained in the Spectres culture.

JOIN US

Catering for all ages and skill levels, the club presents an opportunity for players to develop athletic ability, compete as part of a team, and socialise with like-minded individuals.

We encourage new players to join and actively develop their skills required to play in our teams. We train regularly at various locations around the country. Visit our Sydney or Melbourne teams pages for more info.

Spectres Australia is a proud supporter of the Gay & Lesbian community because we are part of the Gay & Lesbian community. It’s history is our history. It’s struggles have been our struggles. It’s fight for equality has been our fight. It’s celebrations have been our celebrations and some of our biggest triumphs have been hard fought and won.
Our members come from all walks of life, men, women, transexual, non gender identifying, straight, gay, lesbian, queer, single, partnered, married, with kids, without kids, young, old and everything in between.

Together we are one big rainbow family.

 
 

You can donate or support the work we do in the community. Not only are we raising visibility of LGBTIQ people in sport, but we are involved with events like The Sydney Mardi Gras Parade, Fair Day, and Melbourne’s Mid Summa Festival. We organise fundraising club events like trivia nights, 3 on 3 basketball days, and we could sure use your support.
